T-Wolves lose three players to concussion
A Williams Lake PeeWee Timberwolves tournament last weekend welcomed the Smithers Storm, Ft. St. John Flyers, Prince George Tier two and three teams, Quesnel Thunder, Omineca All-Stars and the Burns Lake Bruins.
Williams Lake dominated in the first game, playing Smithers for a 4-0 final score.
On Saturday the T-Wolves took on Prince George for an intense game that ended in a 5-3 loss for Williams Lake and two players out with concussions.
They played Ft. St. John, losing 6-2 and losing another team member to concussion, followed by a loss to Quesnel 7-1.
“These kids played great,” stated team manager and tournament director Quinn Passeri.
“They played with heart and spirit—no one can fault how they played. We lost three players to mild concussions, one defense and two forwards, and that makes a big difference. We had a fourth knocked out in the third game, but recovered enough to return for the next one.
“I’m so proud of them. They represented the City of Williams Lake very well.”
The final game of the tournament featured Omineca and Prince George Tier two, with PG taking the win at 7-2.
Next game for the T-Wolves is an exhibition game against Quesnel this Sunday, something Passeri calls ‘a chance to redeem ourselves.’
